Default Can't open boot lock

Boot lock does not open at all. Not with electronic key and not when other doors are open. Roof is closed and cannot be opened (screen is not engaged). Checked fuses, manual key, pressing on the boot etc. nothing works. Can anyone HELP?
Thanks

Open boot from inside. Their should be a small hole near the lock which you can press with a screwdriver and this will pop the boot. You then need to check the wiring around the hinge. Check in the rubber gator.

You mention the roof cannot be closed. Is your car a 207cc?

Default 207cc Roof/Boot

Do you mean the boot cannot be opened in the luggage configuration (ie as per a normal boot), will not open in order to store the roof (in the other direction) or both?

If it will open in the luggage configuration have you pulled out the screen?

Any messages on the info screen such as 'impossible to complete roof manoeuvre etc...)

Full information would be helpful.

Default 207cc Roof/Boot

I think I'm beginning to understand. When you say screen is not engaged you mean the screen in the boot? I thought you meant the roof was not engaged with the screen section properly. If the screen is not engaged (or pulled out) then the roof will not open whatever else may be wrong. Do you have a message saying something like 'Not possible to complete roof manoeuvre as screen is not....etc) ?

If you do then the roof is probably ok as it would not open anyway without the screen being pulled out so your problem could be confined to the 'normal' boot opening mechanism and you may need diagnostics on that if it isn't fuse related. I'm not aware of any way of manually opening the boot in the cc but there may be others who know more than I do.

Good luck.

Boot lock does not open by any means (no "click" at any time). Roof is closed. When I tried to open the roof, because that will open the boot, it got the message screen is not deployed. Hve moved seat and back to see if I could get in from there. No. Have also tried to disconnect the battery for 10 min, no change. Other doors, no problem. My problem is only that I have to get things out of the boot (laptop size stuff).
Thanks for any help - 207 cc

Default Unable to open the tailgate door from outside

We have the Peugeot 207 and are also unable to open the tailgate with the fob.

I've managed to open it via climbing into the back of the car and inserting the small screwdirver in the hole internally (as advised below)

When the fob is pressed there appears to be no solenoid noise to the tailgate lock but there is for the other locks that works fine.

Is this therefore an electrical fault or is the lock itself faulty. I guess it's the first as the lock does open when done manually from inside.

I checked the log book and there is no fuse specifically for the tailgate lock only for the central locking and if it works for the other doors it should work for the tailgate lock so it can't be the fuse.

There is a mention of a 'gator'? What is that ans where can it be found ?
